While a number of books have looked at the intersection between human health in general and other topics, such as climate change or diet, this book focuses specifically on cancer as it impacts and is impacted by social justice issues. The massive explosion of research knowledge of cancer immunology and genomics is holding out great promise of therapeutic advances, yet other human actions-climate change, pollution, business decisions, advertising - are fostering health inequalities as well as increasing risks. Those involved in cancer care and research are in a unique position to let their experiences and knowledge inform the public, yet very often have not taken strong public roles when it comes to discussing issues surrounding tobacco, climate change and health risks, financial toxicity of treatments, and diet choices. Written by a multidisciplinary team of authors and for medical oncologists, cancer researchers, occupational health workers, and related medical students, residents, and fellows, this book encourages oncologists to address public health care and the societal issues associated with cancer risk. This volume discusses the overarching theme of environmental justice and oncology, focuses on business and cancer (such as clinical trials, drug development and profits, and global disparities), as well as animals and cancer.

Recensioner i media

"The author is targeting all physicians, particularly those who treat cancer, in an attempt to focus their attention on social injustice as it relates to oncology. ... The most up-to-date and impactful information on the broad range of topics this book covers can best be obtained from the current journal literature. The idea behind this book, which is a good one, is to agglomerate a series of essays on related social topics." (Derek Raghavan, Doody's Book Reviews, August 09, 2019)
